Airline tickets are restrictive, non-transferable and non-refundable. Changes in the passenger name, dates, times, routes and/or departure and arrival airports are at the discretion of the airline and if allowed, may be subject to change fee. Passenger is liable for any fee levied by the airline.
Flightsmyway.com acts merely as an intermediary to facilitate purchase of air ticket for the passenger from the airline. Once a passenger books a reservation, their credit or debit card will be charged for the said amount, even if the passenger decides not to use the reservation. No credit will be given for unused airline ticket and credit cannot be used for any future booking.
Airline tickets will be issued for economy class unless specified otherwise by the passenger. Travel will be round-trip unless the passenger specifies otherwise. Seat allocation is based on airline policies, and may not occur until the passenger reaches the airport on the day and time of departure. Airline tickets that a passenger books via Flightsmyway may not necessarily be entitled to frequent flier miles. The passenger agrees to confirm the booking directly with the airline before the date of departure. Flightsmyway.com recommends confirming the departure at least 72 hours in advance.
Direct flights can be non-stop flights or can involve one or more stopovers, with the airline and flight being the same. The same logic applies to connecting flights, with the crew being changed.
When you reserve a flight that has a stopover and the second flight takes off from an airport that is different from the arrival airport, it is the passenger’s responsibility to ensure there is sufficient time to go from one airport to the other. The cost of this journey has to be borne by the passenger and Flightsmyway.com will not reimburse the passenger the cost of going from the first airport to the second airport. Also, Flightsmyway will not be liable if the passenger misses their second flight.
When it comes to air travel, Flightsmyway’s responsibilities are limited by the airline’s conditions of carriage. The airline meeting your contract for carriage may change from one specified by Flightsmyway. Also, Flightsmyway.com is not in a position to specifically state the kind of aircraft the airline will be using. If an airline cancels or delays the flight, the passenger has to coordinate directly with the airline to ensure they arrive at their destination on time. Flightsmyway will not issue any type of refund for trips that are missed in part or full.
B. Prohibited Practices
The passenger agrees not to deviate from the booking they have made by making unscheduled stopovers. Passengers cannot purchase and use fare from the initial point of departure before their actual point or distant point of origin of travel in a bid to reduce or lower the fare.

When a ticket is purchase and used, violating these rules of travel, Flightsmyway and the airline have the sole discretion and rights to take necessary action, as allowed by law. These actions include, but not limited to, the following:
Invalidating the ticket
Cancelling the remainder of the itinerary
Confiscating the unused ticket
Disallowing boarding of the passenger and carrying the passenger’s baggage
Assessing the actual value of the ticket which will be the difference between the lowest fare and the actual fare the passenger paid

The airline is liable for the baggage and will compensate the passenger based on relevant statutes and international conventions. If the baggage is damaged, lost, stolen or late in arrival, the passenger has to get in touch with the airline and declare the damage, loss or missing personal effects before leaving from the airport.
